I thought I should finally post this even though it’s super late. It’s a little map to the “features” of the iPod Shuffle …aka, Apple’s Single Stupidest Idea…ever.
This is pretty damn cool, for us web design nerds, I mean.
The Style Master CSS podGuide is an iPod ready edition of our renowned Complete CSS Guide. Featuring a handy overview of CSS concepts, and in-depth information for every selector, property and @rule of CSS 2.1, the CSS podGuide is a must have for any web developer with an iPod…
Well my first attempt at overclocking began tonight…and I’ll let the screenshots speak for themselves
Some point of interest, I was able to hit 3.767Ghz when the stock speed is 3.2Ghz …so that is a pretty decent overclock for the first try. Also of interest, I posted 2 runs of SuperPi (used to test the stability of an overclock) and as you can see from the pics I was able to run both the 1 million and the 2 million calculations with no problem. I will have to continue to play around with this…my goal would be to hopefully hit something around 3.85Ghz or maybe even 3.9 Ghz.
So this is the first post from the new computer. It’s been an interesting 24 hours. It turns out the video card was DOA (dead on arrival) which is rather annoying because it took about 2 hours of playing with the computer to make sure that is indeed the problem and now I have to go through the hassle of returning it for another one, but at least on the bright side i am running the computer using the crap video card from my old system. Also on the bright side, I am able to overclock this system to 3.61Ghz (stock speed is 3.2Ghz) with absolutely no hassle, so I may be able to reach around 3.8 or so once I actually get into the overclocking a bit more. It’s running beautifully except for the damn video card. Ah well, off to play with the system some more.
In elementary school they tell you as a child that “There is no such thing as a stupid question.” This in fact is a lie. There are stupid questions and there are stupid people asking questions that need not be asked. I keep seeing people ask “What is the best browser rendering engine?” and I will finally say something about this…
“This thread is ridiculous. How can someone possibly pick a browser engine that doesn’t display things correctly based on the standards? I don’t care if Opera is “faster”, (which it isn’t) if it doesn’t display things the way they should be based on the standards then it’s a terrible engine. Also, it’s important to mention, duh IE will start faster…the damn thing is built into the explorer interface, obviously it’s going to open faster.
Netscape is onto the right idea with it’s support of both the gecko engine and the IE engine based on the users preferences. This isn’t a solution because the IE engine is still flawed and based too much on ActiveX, but it’s a temporary solution until MS (just for example) starts making standards compliant pages.”
Wow, it’s …so very weird seeing this campus ….knowing that I am not a part of it anymore. I passed Zorona’s going done Raymond, passed the intersection at College Ave and saw Joss and my heart just sank. It’s so weird how this place has become such a part of me, so much of a home for me and yet, no more. Up until recently I loved being here, I loved everything about being here, but with obvious recent changes that feeling has inverted to a feeling of dread and worry. It was almost as if in that instant I saw Joss I forgot all of the bad feelings I associate with Vassar now and I was a anxious freshman again. I guess I don’t have a point to this, I just had to get down these thoughts about the extreme weirdness.
For anyone wondering, I brought my laptop and my wireless router because I knew I was going to have a bit of downtime. I don’t have much to pack up, none of my house is back yet, only a few other random friends around campus are back, so I wanted something to kill some time with.
All computer parts are either present, or ordered and currently on there way here …and I am freakin tired, so goodnight.
More pictures, this time updated, of my new computer…

The Microsoft Virus Removal Tool under codename TITAN is a 2 step wizard to remove know infections from your PC. Step 1 is accepting the EULA, step 2 searches and results a green or red icon.
This will be a nice piece of software from Microsft that will be free and updated monthly (though hopefully more frequently if needed). Note: This is not a replacement for normal antivirus software, this is more for use on a suspected virus infected computer. It will be released to the public tomorrow (Jan 11, 2005).
Completely forget my previous comment about that image being a basis for the next site design. Obviously I was having a temporary mental fart because now looking at it I have realized just how terrible it was. Anyways… I spent a fair amount of time this evening on a new new site design and here is a link to it
This one is a bit better in my opinion, but I could be wrong… It’s still very much a “work in progress” and non of the links or content works, it’s all just filler to give an idea of what the completed design would look like with real content. Anyways, again let me know what you think…
